Sister Simone Campbell

  • The Well @Queen Anne United Methodist Church 1606 5th Avenue West Seattle, WA, 98119 United States

Sr. Simone is the Executive Director of NETWORK, a National Catholic Social Justice lobbying group based in Washington DC. The focus of NETWORK is on economic justice, immigration reform, healthcare, peace making and ecology. Sr. Simone started her "Nun on the Bus" tours to talk to everyday Americans about how legislation had such a powerful impact on these issues. Each year her tour took a different topic to bring to the folks who met her bus. 

Her tours have drawn thousands of listeners and her book "The Nun on the Bus" has touched thousands more. Her work will soon be made into a documentary, but you'll have a chance to see her in person. In this election year it is more important than ever to hear what she has to say about Washington DC politics and the concerns she has with upcoming elections. 

Sister Simone will talk about how faith, justice, and our electoral process are related. She will, in particular, focus on this election, the environment, and poverty.

The Well is partnering with Assumption Parish and the Church Council of Greater Seattle in presenting Sr. Simone. 

This event is free and open to the public. We welcome gifts as a free will offering to help offset the costs of the event.
